The Miniature Imperial Clover Egg

The Clover Egg was given by Tsar Nicholas II to his wife, the Empress Alexandra, for Easter 1902. It has remained in Russia continuously, never having having been sold by the government. When the Egg was confiscated by the Bolsheviks in the course of the Revolution, the original surprise went missing and has never been recovered. It was a series of picture frames in the shape of a four leaf clover and held photographs of the family.

Although done in Limoges porcelain this Egg is designed to replicate the feeling of the Imperial Clover Egg which is actually done in the plique-a-jour technique. Here they have painted a melange of clovers over the entire Egg. Open the Egg and there on the plinth is a four leaf clover pavéd with Austrian crystals.

This egg would make a marvelous St. Patrick's Day gift!

Our price: $450.00.

Note: If you are interested in seeing the Egg that is actually done in plique-a-jour it can be seen in the Imperial Egg Collection. It is the only Egg that is done in this manner.
